The OBC ends the Year of Cultural Heritage with a tribute concert to Eduard Toldrà

The Vilanova-born maestro was the OBC’s first resident conductor, a position he held from ‎‎1944 to 1962.‎

The Barcelona Symphony Orchestra will close the Year of Cultural ‎Heritage at L’Auditori with a tribute concert to Eduard Toldrà ‎‎(1895-1962), an icon of the world of music in Catalonia. The maestro, who was born in ‎Vilanova and trained as a violinist, was the first resident conductor of the OBC, at the time ‎known as the Barcelona Municipal Orchestra. In addition, he was a prolific composer of both ‎symphonic works and chamber music, as well as the author of a comic opera and countless ‎original songs.‎

The event is part of the European Year initiative, a great opportunity to showcase Catalonia’s ‎cultural heritage in the EU and the values we share.‎
